About the Movie
This psychologically acute, visually striking modernist work was director Michelangelo Antonioni’s follow-up to the epochal L'AVVENTURA. Marcello Mastroianni and Jeanne Moreau star as a novelist and his frustrated wife, who, over the course of one night, confront their alienation from each other and the achingly empty bourgeois Milan circles in which they travel. Antonioni’s muse Monica Vitti smolders as an industrialist’s tempting daughter. Moodily sensual cinematography and subtly expressive performances make LA NOTTE an indelible illustration of romantic and social deterioration.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: For Antonioni, beginnings and endings aren't plot points on a narrative graph; they resonate everywhere, entwined and inseparable.
Fresh: Ennui and eroticism make an oddly alluring combo in Michelangelo Antonioni's La Notte.
Fresh: The romantic conflicts of an intellectual couple in bourgeois Milan come to life in a visually dazzling yet psychologically dislocating pageant of clashing architectural styles.
Rotten: For all the sublimity of its craft, La Notte will leave most viewers feeling no less bored than its ennui-afflicted characters.
